Category of complementary medicine: Homoeopathic medicine. Homoeopathic mode of action: Homoeopathy is a system of medicine, built on the philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and should be allowed to do so. Homoeopathic medicines work energetically to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal by promoting or supporting the functioning of various organ systems. It works according to the principle of '`like cures like' such that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person, can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Over the last 300 years, observations, experiments, homoeopathic provings and clinical experience have resulted in the collection of symptoms associated with particular remedies which are recorded in traditional homoeopathic materia medica. This medicine has been compiled based on an in-depth knowledge of the tradition and application of homoeopathy. The relevant symptoms from the composite remedy pictures are as follows: Achillea millefolium is indicated for vomiting blood and passing blood in the stool. Arctostaphylos uvaursi assists in the treatment of vomiting associated with urinary symptoms like cystitis. Artemisia absinthium acts on the digestive system to treat nausea and retching, bloating of the abdomen and colic with flatulence. Berberis vulgaris acts on the liver and gall bladder to promote the flow of bile and on the venous system to improve circulation. It treats gallstones, nausea before breakfast, heartburn and clay-coloured stools. Chelidonium majus acts on the liver to treat biliousness during pregnancy, halitosis, gastralgia, jaundice due to hepatic and gallbladder obstruction and gallstones. Fel tauri increases the duodenal secretions, emulsifies fats, increases intestinal peristalsis and helps relieve jaundice and obstruction of gall ducts. Gentiana lutes has a tonic action on the appetite and treats intestinal symptoms like acid risings, nausea, stomach ache, abdominal distention, colic and flatulence. Herniaria glabra has astringent and diuretic properties. Kalium natrum tartaricum is indicated for vomiting and pain in the umbilical region. Matricaria recutita has a calming effect on the gastrointestinal tract and relieves nausea after coffee, sweating after eating and drinking, aversion to warm drinks, yellow tongue with bitter taste in mouth, bilious vomiting, abdominal distention, griping pain in the region of the navel, painful flatulence and hepatic colic. Nasturtium officinale aids digestion and relieves colic. Natrium oleicum has cholegogic properties and promotes healthy bile flow. Peumus boldus relieves sensation of burning weight in the region of the stomach, bitter taste and languor. Rhamnus frangula treats abdominal pain, colic and diarrhoea. Rheum palmatum relieves sour smelling diarrhoea, colic and ineffectual urging to pass stools. Silybum marianum has a healing and analgesic action on the liver and portal system. It relieves bitter eructations, small appetite, furred tongue, nausea, vomiting of green acid fluid, pain in the region of the liver and bright yellow stools. It treats constipation alternating with diarrhoea, enlarged liver, jaundice and cirrhosis. Taraxacum officinale relieves gastric headaches, bilious attacks with jaundiced skin, flatulence, loss of appetite and enlarged liver. Trifolium fibrini relieves congestion of the salivary glands with a feeling of mumps.
